I will also post about it each chapter, and we'll see.
Dawkins pulls no punches with his adjectives describing those who don't believe in evolution: "woefully uninformed", "history-deniers", and "uneducated churchgoers" are examples. On the other hand, liberal church clergy who believe in evolution are "thoughtful."
In Chapter 1, he begins his case by arguing that a "theory", according to the Oxford English Dictionary, can be either an unconfirmed or confirmed hypothesis. He gives examples of the confirmed variety:
- The Earth orbits around the sun
- The sun is larger than the earth
- Pythagorean Theorum in mathematics
He concludes chapter 1 by promising to prove evolution to be a confirmed hypothesis, essentially a theory that is fact, just like the earth, sun, and the triangle.
As an uneducated, woefully misinformed history denier who happens to have an IQ higher than 2% of the general population, I can't wait.
